Going home… RODEO BLUES #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday @RebeccaJVickery

Grunge Background.Welcome to Snippet Sunday.

This week, I thought I'd give you a sneak peek of my upcoming release, RODEO BLUES!

If you're interested in last week's snippet of WANTED here you go: Chapter 4 Snippet 4

Snippet: Rodeo Blues, Chapter One

Tye has arrived home...

 

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

Tye Casper pulled his Ford pickup to the side of the road and glanced at the billboard welcoming him to the town of Skeeter Blue, Texas, and right next to the sign another one glittered with red, white, and blue lights announcing the town's annual event, the Cowboy Christmas in July Rodeo.

Rodeos were a big deal in Texas, and why wouldn't they be when they could trace their roots back to the Spanish missionaries, who'd taught the ranch hands the horsemanship they'd learned in Spain. The informal competition eventually turned into a multimillion-dollar sport, and you weren't a Texan if your city or town didn't hold at least one rodeo event a year. Skeeter Blue was no different, and their event lasted four days, featuring everything from topnotch rodeo events to pie eating contests, but he'd avoided this annual rodeo event for a good reason. But being stupid had finally caught up with him, and here he sat in his truck – about to either make the biggest mistake of his life or the very best one.

He pursed his lips and flicked his Stetson with his forefinger so it rested on the back of his head. A flood of emotions swept over him as he anticipated his reunion with the people he'd left behind in Skeeter Blue. Well, one woman in particular came to mind, Jolie Lockhart.

His fingers gripped the steering wheel as his thoughts of their possible reunion played out in his mind over and over again with alternate endings. None of them ended well.

************************************************************************************

Have you ever played out a meeting in your head, but when you actually see the person, it doesn't go as you rehearsed? lol

If you have the time, I would love it if you would help me out with Rodeo Blues' Thunderclap campaign. I promise, it is really easy to do. :) I need 100 supporters for it to work. I have 51! (At the time I created this post). More than halfway there! If I reach 100, I'm giving away $25 Gift card to one lucky supporter, too. So spread the word! https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/28996-cowboy-christmas-in-july

Thanks so much! Until next week, take care.

Blurb:

Eight Seconds to Lose the Girl…

One chance to win her back.

Tye Casper, a.k.a. the Ghost Rider and champion bull rider, should be the happiest cowboy alive, but when he left home ten years ago to make it big, he said goodbye to the only woman he has ever loved. He's had his eight seconds of glory, but without Jolie Lockhart by his side, the wins mean nothing.

He's been given an opportunity to return home to Skeeter Blue for one last rodeo. He believes fate has sent him there and he'll have a second chance with Jolie, but nothing goes as planned. He soon realizes staying seated on a bull for eight seconds may prove much simpler than winning Jolie's heart.

Supper’s Ready! WANTED #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday @RebeccaJVickery

Grunge Background.Welcome to Snippet Sunday.

We're continuing from where we left off last week. If you're interested, here's the link to last weeks snippet from WANTED:

Chapter 4 Snippet #1

Set up for this week: We're jumping ahead a few paragraphs in this snippet. JoBeth is behind bars and was asleep, but Jace woke her up.  It's late and he wants to go home for supper. He opens the cell door, but then halts when he realizes JoBeth seems frightened...

Jace Kelly's POV.

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

"Aren't you hungry?" he asked carefully. Her defensive stance made him wonder what abuse she'd endured at the hands of the deputies who brought her here.

Her brows drew together and she licked her lips before her eyes hardened with suspicion. "I don't see no tray with you."

"Well, no ma'am, I don't suppose you do. Supper is waiting for us back at the house."

"Your house?" she asked in disbelief.

Her look of surprise almost made him chuckle again, but then he realized this woman, this outlaw hadn't been treated with kindness. Of course she'd be suspicious of his actions. "I don't see the sense in traipsing all the way to my house and bringing you back your supper later when it tastes a whole lot better when it's nice and hot."

************************************************************************************
Jace wants to take her home for supper. Find out next week what JoBeth thinks of that.
Hope you enjoyed the snippet of WANTED.

Until next week, take care.

Wanted_2015_mediumAbout the Book:

Sheriff Jace Kelly's wife died birthing his remarkable daughter, Emma. She inherited the families' seer abilities. At six years old, she can't tell the difference between a vision and an ordinary dream. So Jace doesn't put much faith in Emma's recent premonition: marriage for him and a new mother for her.

When JoBeth Riley arrives, Emma is convinced she's the woman in her dream: dark hair, green eyes, and shamrocks in her pocket. There's one problem – she's the notorious outlaw, Baby Face Jo. Her stay in town is meant to keep Shane Maverick, the leader of the outlaw gang, from finding her before the authorities devise a plan to capture him.

JoBeth finds the Kellys a strange lot. A little girl, who believes her dreams are tales of the future and the rugged sheriff whose kindness proves a distraction. She's an outlaw, for heaven's sake, but Jace is bound and determined to steal her heart.

Baby Face Jo– WANTED #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday @RebeccaJVickery

Grunge Background.Welcome to Snippet Sunday.

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful fathers out there! Hope you're enjoying your day.

We're continuing from where we left off last week. If you're interested, here's the link to last weeks snippet from WANTED:

Chapter 3 Snippet #6

Set up for this week: JoBeth is locked behind bars and has fallen asleep. It gives Sheriff Kelly a moment to take a closer look at the outlaw in his care. 

We know what JoBeth thinks of the Kellys from last weeks snippet. Let's find out what Jace thinks of JoBeth.

Jace Kelly's POV.

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

In slumber, JoBeth's features relaxed and without her piercing green eyes assessing his every move, he could really look at her. Sure, dirt and grime from her hastened journey marred her smooth skin, but he could still see she possessed a fine straight nose, and the lashes lying on her delicate cheeks were very long and dark as her hair. She appeared so young and vulnerable—nothing like what he imagined a female outlaw to look like. His lips twitched. Truly, what had he expected? That she'd be wearing men's pants and puffing on a cigar, while she cleaned her nails with a knife. His lips curved wider at the image he conjured in his mind. Somehow, even then, she'd appeared too feminine to look like a hardened criminal.

She'd been asleep for hours, probably the first real sleep she had in days. Jace hated to wake her, but it grew late and he wanted to head home for the night.

************************************************************************************
Sometimes looks can be deceiving, but then maybe Jace is seeing past the label 'outlaw'. What do you think?
Hope you enjoyed the snippet of WANTED.

Until next week, take care.

VTP- Author Opportunity. Do you have a story? @RebeccaJ.Vickery @KMNbooks

 Telegram
VICTORY TALES PRESS is looking for Romantic tales for our
Myth, Legends and Midnight Kisses, 2015 Halloween Collection!
 
The approach of autumn and the Halloween Season has a varied appeal. Some would rather celebrate All Saints Day and forget the scary stuff, or some love the chilling tales of legends. This autumn VTP's anthology will spotlight romances with a theme of legends and myths. It can be a made up legend or myth, or perhaps an old one with your own special twist. It's up to you.
 
The short stories can be any genre as long as there is a romance and a mention of a legend or myth. (The romance doesn't have to be the main focus.) The stories may have a western, fantasy, history, time travel or even adventure theme. They can be eerie tales and capers, too.

Vampires, witches and werewolves have a variety of legends you can draw from, and you can add your own special mythology to it.

What if there was an outlaw from the 1800s, who buried his treasure and someone from now found it? Perhaps it was cursed...

How about a civil war legend like the angel's glow legend... Where the soldiers' wounds actually glowed and those who did, had a better chance of surviving. What if there was an actual angel...vampire...fairy...or perhaps a special woman or man who had the power of healing...

Maybe your legend is an item that has the power of finding a soul mate...

It can be anything. Let your imagination guide you.

What are we looking for? Any LEGEND or Myth themed romance (sweet to sensual) with a word count between 10,000-20,000. If your tale is slightly shorter or longer, this is okay. The word count is only an estimation guide. :)
 
When do we need the stories? Now until Sept. 15th. The sooner you can email your submission the better. We will do some light editing only, but we will need time to read through all submissions. :)
 
Please send submissions to kmnbooks @ yahoo . com (no spaces).
Please put 2015 HALLOWEEN COLLECTION in the SUBJECT LINE. 
 
I can't wait to read your tales! Any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. :)
 
Happy writing!
Karen
VTP Anthology Coordinator
Our recent Releases!

Happily Ever After isn’t for JoBeth. WANTED #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday @KMNbooks

Grunge Background.Welcome to Snippet Sunday.

We're continuing from where we left off last week. If you're interested, here's the link to the third snippet from WANTED:

Chapter 3 Snippet #5

Set up for this week: JoBeth just told Sheriff Jace Kelly, he was a little touched in the head. Read on to find out his response...

JoBeth's POV.

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

His sure steps took him to his desk, where he took a seat and reached for his paperwork. "I think if you get to know us, you'll find we're a pretty likable bunch," he said with a chuckle, not in the least bit offended.

She had a hunch there were wanted posters on his desk, and there was probably one for her and Maverick: Reward, Dead or Alive... Their posters never contained photographs, since she and Maverick never sat for a photo, but there were sketches. Not precisely a correct rendition of their likeness, but in the past that proved a benefit in their favor. Now, the authorities knew what she looked like, and she'd have to change her appearance once she escaped.

Sheriff Jace Kelly and his family might be likable, but she wouldn't be here long enough to find out. Good riddance too. She didn't need their fairytale existence clouding her judgment. She knew what awaited her outside of these bars, and it had nothing to do with living happily-ever-after.

************************************************************************************
JoBeth wants to escape, but what will she truly be running from?
Hope you enjoyed the snippet of WANTED.

Until next week, take care.

JoBeth's POV.

*The excerpt may have been modified to fit the 10 sentence limit. :)

*********************************************************************************

I rob stagecoaches for a living, Sheriff. Does it sound like I'm mother material to you?"

He gave her a long, even look before he answered, "I believe there's more to you than meets the eye. No one is one way or the other. We're like onions with layers needing to be peeled back so we can discover the real person."

She snorted in disbelief. "No wonder your little girl has her head in the clouds." She leaned against the wall again. "You're all a little touched in the head here." Her forefinger tapped her temple for emphasis.

************************************************************************************
Somehow I don't think the sheriff will be put off by her statement. lol What do you think?:)Hope you enjoyed the snippet of WANTED.
